Keith Reeves, Chair of the Board of the Directors of the Virginia Society for Technology in Education, spoke with The News & Advance, Lynchburg's newspaper, about Section 508 compliance, the section of the Americans With Disabilities Act that deals with eliminating barriers to information technologies.
Many school divisions have received official notification that their sites are not compliant and must create a plan for how they will bring them into compliance.
In addition to his work with VSTE, Reeves is a senior instructional technology coordinator for Arlington Public Schools. He speaks regularly about Section 508 issues. He will be a guest speaker at Making Connections: Southwest Regional Ed Tech Summit, on March 22, 2017, in Roanoke, Virginia. Registration for this event is open now. Reeves led a webinar about accessibility for VSTE in October 2016. You can view the archive of the webinar here.
